“I’m feeling a lot better and I have more energy.
He and his staff are the coolest people. They are just so supportive, very nice, non-judgmental, and just encourage you all the way, all of us. They are very supportive and kind and even though we don’t sometimes do the right things like exercise or whatever, he doesn’t scold us. He tells us what we need to do it but in a kind way.”
Dr. Katsura is a Very Sincere and Genuine Person
“I’ve been packing on about 5 pounds a year for the past 20 years. So, I was getting up there and not feeling well. My knees hurt a lot, my feet hurt a lot, and it hurt to bend over to tie my shoes. So I talked to my doctor about surgery and actually, he’s an advocate of surgery but I’m not and neither is my husband. So, we had some friends that were doing something similar and we checked and did some research and found Dr. Katsura and his website. We went on there and thought about it and decided. What can we lose by a consultation?
He offers a free consultation so we went there and talked to him and came out with a really good feeling about it. We didn’t get started right away. We had to wait till Christmas and the holidays were over but we got started after the first of the year and he’s ended up being everything that he is at the consultation. He is very personable. He seems just like a very sincere and genuine person that just wants to help you.”
Real People With Real Weight Loss Results From dietMD Motivated Jan to Join
“These are real people and they’re from this area and you love looking at before and after pictures. It’s motivating. If they can do it, you should be able to do it, so we decided to give it a go and see what happened.”
Tried Other Programs but They Didn’t Work
“We’ve tried Weightwatchers before and we’ve tried low carb diets, vegetarian and even vegan and I didn’t lose anything. I would lose maybe a few pounds initially and then it would just level off and nothing would happen.”
Jan is a Huge Fan of dietMD Hawaii Program
“It’s just been a huge adjustment with the groceries that I buy and what we keep in our kitchen and in our cupboards and our refrigerator. There is no junk and very few carbs. It’s isn’t hard as I thought it was going to be. I didn’t realize I’ve been on a low carb diet, a really low carb diet. You lose your appetite naturally and things start tasting different.
So, during one dinner, someone brought a German Chocolate cake and I thought “You know what, I never cheated. It’s been 2 or 3 months and I haven’t cheated at all. I’m going to go ahead and take a bite.” It didn’t even taste the same. It was not as good as I’d expected and I was amazed at that. I was really amazed that chocolate didn’t taste as good as it used to. So it’s pretty much reconfigured my taste buds or something. The hunger isn’t there, the cravings isn’t there so I’m a fan. I’m a total fan now.”
Jan is Feeling a Lot Better
“The coolest thing is I was a CPAP user and just about in the past week, I have taken off the mask at night and my husband reports no snoring, I’m not waking up at the middle of the night gagging. That was huge for me because for CPAP wearers, they know how cumbersome and awkward and horrible they are, and they’re sweaty and they’re obnoxious and it’s just nice to sleep without holes coming out of your nose. So, that’s been nice. Also, my knees are about 70%-80% better. I have osteoarthritis in the knees, it will be that way forever, but just having all that weight off the joints is really, really helpful (Jan’s lost 58 pounds, that’s a huge help!). I’m feeling a lot better and I have more energy.”
Jan is Proud of Her Twins Who are in the Program as Well
“I’m very proud! Maddie doesn’t even look the same. She doesn’t even look like the same girl. Emma was up on stage the other day, I was just like, “Oh my goodness! She’s just really come a long way”. I’m really proud of both of them. They’ve worked really hard. We used to go to fast food and it would be fries and hamburgers like everybody else and now its salad! They get excited over a salad from McDonalds like, “Can we have that chicken salad?” and to me it’s just an amazing thing. They totally changed.
It’s rewarding for me to see them with more confidence and it’s just exciting. Emma is now trying to help some of her overweight friends. She tells them how to do it, what they need to do, and actually encouraged them to see Dr. Katsura. So, it’s very cool. They’re believers in it and they’re excited and they just love the way they look and love the way they feel and I like watching that. It’s a good growing experience for them.”
